Vengeance Isn’t Mine (this time)

“I’m Catholic And I Vote!”

Aside from Bush/Cheney and Romney/Ryan, this is officially the dumbest bumper sticker I’ve ever seen.

So, you’re Catholic and you vote. I’m Jewish and a little bloated right now, but you don’t see me broadcasting that on my car, do you?

What message are you trying to get across to us? Your good Catholic values are guiding your ballots?


But let me ask you this, asshole, what about the dog you leave out in your backyard in nineteen degree weather? What’s that equate to, only thirteen degrees below freezing?

I drive by your house often. At different times. And I always see your dog out there.

You’re a good Catholic? I think not.

FACT: if you feel the need to let the world know about your religion, especially with a bumper sticker, you’re covering something up.

Since I’m not known for turning the other cheek, I’d like to put your poor dog out of its misery. But now that I think about it, I’d rather put you out of your misery.

How dare you treat one of God’s creatures like that?

Nevertheless, I’ll do no such thing.

I’ll just humbly ask the universe for both of your best case scenarios.

And then it will all unfold as it must.

  1. Maybe you should do as you said and not turn your cheek, leave them a printed copy of this taped on their car or front door. Sorry my passion for whats right and wrong sometimes gets the best of me….but people like this get under my skin.
    Thanks for the post, it’s nice sometimes to know that there’s others out there like me.

  2. Perhaps you should leave them a warning note. “A good catholic would not mistreat their animal by leaving him in the cold! Maybe you should be a better catholic before you advertise it?! Just a thought. If you don’t take better care of him/her, I will report you to for animal abuse. Have a nice day!! ;-)”

  3. Clearly they have something not connecting in their minds. I’m glad all of your synoptors are synopting! I too think these people should get a copy of this letter and hopefully they’ll treat that doggie better … But sadly they’ll most likely remove the bumper sticker. Sad -:(
